It is of great sadness for us to announce that Gran Colombia Tours will cease its services due to COVID-19 from March 20th to May 31st. Our administrative staff will be available during this period for any assistance you might need.
We really hope to show again Colombia’s beauty and potential to the world as soon as we recover from this crisis.
For now, it is time to help #StayAtHome
Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
Come with us and discover the mysteries of these old sleeping giants on a horseback riding tour to Monserrate. Take this ride through the rich history and relationship of these sacred hills and busy city.
The Eastern Hills are a staple of Bogotá’s outdoor activities. Great hikes, amazing views, and religious monuments look over the busy capital below. And among these hills, the twins Guadalupe and Monserrate are most well known and visited. So come with us and get to know them in a whole new way: riding!
Join us first in Guadalupe, where you’ll enjoy a delicious typical snack, before taking the trails that connect the sister hills. Energized, mount your horse and ride the trail that will take you back to Colombia’s religious colonialism and the transformations it caused.
Enjoy the horseback ride tour through mountain and forest into Monserrate, learn of the various indigenous and rural traditions and their connection to the hills, before reaching the famous viewpoints and cathedral.
Rest your weary haunches after the ride and take in the amazing views: the whole plateau is yours to take in. Then, you are welcome to explore Monserrate with us, its myths and legends still alive today.
Before heading back down to the city, enjoy a traditional lunch among the hills and visit the local artisanal market. Finally, seize the afternoon enjoying the amazing views before descending back to Bogotá in cable car or funicular.
Not all of history is found in textbooks. Sometimes what you need is a taste of history, and what better way to taste history than through a region’s drinks?
